Raspberry – Blooms but no Fruit

Q: My Heritage raspberries have been planted for a few years and never produced fruit. This year looks promising with so many flowers. But they all looked like the attached picture. Am I going to be disappointed again?

A: UGA fruit expert Bob Westerfield says he suspects cold damage.

Since Heritage bears fruit in fall as well as spring, fertilize now (early June), then leave your plants alone and report back what happens.
